Zappos announced that a breach was discovered and 24 million accounts have been compromised of information including names, email addresses, billing and shipping addresses, phone numbers, the last four digits of credit cards and encrypted passwords.
If you are a customer of Zappos, go to their website for more information and read other news reports about it.
Criminals normally use the information to send targeted phishing email, phone calls, texts, etcetera, since they have your contact information and can fashion convincing lies to trick you. Be on your guard and don’t trust those unexpected emails.
